Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 60 men and 170 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall was an all-women’s residence hall but it became co-ed for the 2017-2018 school year. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and partners with McGregor Hall to do the annual Luau, one of the first all-hall programs of the year. Wilgus Hall is also home to the Women's Wellness library and Interest Community.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Hello Wilgus Women!
April already?! The countdown to the end of the semester is well underway and we will be talking about closing before you know it. Please be sure to read through the following reminders to ensure a successful April and to make your move-out as easy as possible!
April Break: If you are planning to stay in the halls for April Break please sign up here. The halls will close at 6:00 p.m., Thursday, April 13th for break and will reopen 5:00 p.m., Sunday, April 16th.
Class Registration: It’s that time of the semester again! For those of you not graduating at the end of the semester, you should already be in contact with your advisor to set up your PIN meetings. Class registration opens Monday, April 3rd, please consult your PASS account for your exact registration time and date if you are unsure. You can view the Registrar’s calendar here.
Summer Storage: Do you dislike moving… bringing everything home when you will be bringing it back to campus soon enough? Then Summer Storage is for YOU! Sign-up and you can store your things right in your Fall 2017 room. Items will need to be boxed up and placed on the bed or in the closet. Signed contracts are due to the Residence Life office in Royce Hall by Friday, May 5th.
Summer Housing: If you are planning on staying in Platteville this summer and are looking for a place to live, you can always stay right on campus in Rountree Commons! Rountree will be open for summer residents to rent out a space on a weekly basis. This is a great option for residents planning to stay just a short time or all summer long. Check out the Residence Life website for more information!
Closing Information: Later this month, your RA will be scheduling a closing meeting to discuss what is expected of you during building closing. Please be on the lookout for this information so you can be sure to avoid any unnecessary fines and to ease your move out process. We also encourage you to begin taking unnecessary items home with you now to lesson your load at move-out.

Safety Tip of the Month: Practice proper bike safety if you are choosing to ride a bike on campus or within the community.
